Review for Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont, Inc., Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When people think of Goodwill, they often think of a great place to shop for inexpensive treasures or the perfect place to donate their unwanted items... what most don't realize is the tremendous impact Goodwill Industries of The Southern Piedmont is making in our community. Goodwill is providing top-notch job training for those in need for many industries from construction to banking and changing lives not only of the individuals trained, but of their families as well. I’ve been personally brought to tears at Goodwill graduation ceremonies watching the pride of these Goodwill trainies as they celebrate their accomplishments. Work gives a human being a place in our community and self-worth. Belief and hope in a better tomorrow… This is truly what Goodwill is providing on daily basis. Keep donating, shopping and get involved with Goodwill Industries of The Southern Piedmont!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

just the type people you would like to have working or volunterring for your company. They are always hard working, well organized and committed to taking Goodwill of The Southern Piedmont to the next level.
